Every video game begins as an idea. Over time, that idea evolves, growing from wispy what-if into a virtual world made from craftsmanship, ingenuity, and imagination. Step by step through the creative process, a story takes shape—not the story told in the game, but the story of the game; the origin of the idea, its gestation, and the triumphs and tribulations of the people who built every bit, byte, pixel, and polygon.
Digital Monument Press exists to document those stories. Our books chronicle the making of video games, the personal accounts of the developers who make them, and the culture that drives the video-game industry. The end result is more than just a book. It is a digital monument, one erected page by page, story by story, in celebration of the people, games, practices, and culture that paved the way for those that followed.
